Throughout the day the team will be inviting you to hop aboard and unwind your mind and body in an hourly meditation session. Sessions will be running from 12pm-5pm, so be sure to get your name down. They will also be bringing their latest seasonal pieces so you can leave feeling suitably calm and looking the part.


Qualified SUP yoga instructor Sarah Sims will be with us at Bray Lakes, Tallington and London. Sarah will be offering a mixture of taster, improver and SUP fitness sessions. So, no matter what your level of ability or experience; her enthusiasm, expertise and support are sure to see you achieve more than you thought possible on a yoga paddle board.


The guys from Rabble will also be running intensely fun ‘exercise’ classes at the London event, featuring immersive team games, suitable for everyone to take part and enjoy.


Daffy's gin will be on hand in London to provide us with a refreshing tipple (or two) to help kick off those 'Après SUP' vibes!


Our friends from the lifestyle brand, Fatboy will also be supporting us throughout the trip. So once all the fun's been had, you can kick back and relax in one of their ridiculously comfy Lamzac loungers.

We can't wait to meet you all - See you on the road!
